verse 29, "let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (god's favor) to those who hear it. and do not grieve the holy spirit." verse 31, "and let all bitterness and indignation and wrath (passion, rage, bad temper) and resentment (anger, animosity), quarreling, (brawling, clamor, contention), slander (evil-speaking, abusive or blasphemous language) be banished from you, with all malice (spite, ill will, or baseness of any kind)." wow. i couldn't even tell you how many hours i've stared at these scriptures because i tell ya, i do not want to offend, vex or sadden the holy spirit. i don't want to do any damage to the anointing on my life.
